This year, there are four iPhone 12 series, which continue the naming method of last year. In addition to the basic model, pro and pro Max models, this year there are also new mini versions. The main difference between them is the processor size and the number of cameras. < / P > < p > although the iPhone 11 pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are no longer sold on Apple’s official website, users can still purchase them from other supply channels. For those who already own the iPhone 11 series, I hope this article can help. < / P > < p > the focus is on the iPhone 12 mini, which is smaller than the iPhone se. For those who are tired of large screen phones, it is a very good choice. < / P > < p > the iPhone 12 Mini is the lightest of the eight iPhones, only 135 g (4.8 oz), while the heaviest is the 12 Pro max, which weighs 228 g (8 oz), with a difference of 93 g (3.2 oz) over the entire range. Weight is usually not the first factor to choose and buy, but for users who pay more attention to the feel, they can pay attention to it. < / P > < p > in general, apple offers richer and brighter colors for lower priced iPhones, while higher end iPhones have softer metal finishes. We see black, white, and red on the iPhone se, 11, 12, 12 mini, the latter two are also green and blue, and the 11 are green, yellow and purple. < / P > < p > at the same time, both pro and pro Max models have gold and silver coatings, of which the 11 series also offers space grey and midnight green, while the 12 series also offers graphite and sea blue. < / P > < p > in the iPhone 12 series, Apple introduced the “ceramic shield” technology. The front and back glass is made of newly developed glass ceramics, which are designed to quadruple the screen’s fracture resistance. The iPhone 12 series also comes with magnets that can be attached to new accessories such as wallets, phone cases and chargers. < / P > < p > the iPhone se has the lowest proportion of screens, mainly because there is a home button at the bottom. The other seven iPhones are designed without borders, and the iPhone 12 series has a higher proportion of screens than the iPhone 11. < / P > < p > the iPhone 12 series typically has higher resolution than its predecessors. In fact, the iPhone Se and 11 are the last phones with screens that don’t even have full HD resolution, which most other companies achieved a few years ago. The 11 pro and pro Max are much better equipped, with a display of about 2K. < / P > < p > after years of continuous use of IPS LCD, Apple’s iPhone 12 series has started to configure OLED screens throughout the system. In general, OLED screens bring brighter colors, deeper black, and better contrast. < / P > < p > the launch of each iPhone generation means a new processor, so the iPhone 12 series is equipped with Apple’s latest A14 bionic processor. This is the first chip in the industry to use 5nm Technology (currently the industry mainly stays at 7Nm), and Apple says the performance is faster than other processors. It can be said that this generation of camera technology has not achieved a great leap forward. In fact, the only real difference in numbers is that some cameras have a slightly wider aperture (F value). The main camera of all eight mobile phones is a 12 megapixel wide-angle camera, and the iPhone se is equipped with a 12 megapixel super wide-angle lens. The pro and pro max series also offer 12 megapixel telephoto lenses. < / P > < p > the biggest new feature is the lidar sensor on the iPhone 12 pro and pro max. Similar to the depth sensing technology used to help autopilot car navigation, this will greatly improve the functions of augmented reality (AR) and scatter effect. < / P > < p > they can be shot in high dynamic range (HDR), capturing the brightest and darkest parts of the scene at a time. There’s a new version of the iPhone 12 series, which Apple calls smart HDR 3, which apparently uses machine learning to recognize content in a scene and highlight or deepen parts to show the best details. < / P > < p > all eight iPhones can take panoramic photos and have some form of AR, in which virtual objects and characters are covered in the real world through the camera. For example, it could be used to catch a Pokemon in the park, turn itself into a cartoon character to send a video message or check the appearance of a new sofa in the living room. With lidar, the iPhone 12 series optimizes ar performance. < / P > < p > thanks to lidar, the depth of field effect is also enhanced. All eight phones can use this effect, which can subtly blur the background to help the subject stand out. In portrait mode, it is the clearest, and different lighting effects can be used to reproduce studio shooting. < / P > < p > with the exception of the iPhone se, all seven iPhones support night mode. It takes longer exposure time to capture more light in a darker scene, thus illuminating them better without washing out color or detail. In the iPhone 12 series, both wide-angle and ultra wide angle cameras use night mode, capturing 27% more light than previous models. In 12 pro and pro max, larger sensors allow more light to enter, while lidar helps focus low light. < / P > < p > the iPhone 12 series also has a new feature called deep fusion. This allows multiple exposures to be captured consecutively and then analyzed to maximize detail at different depths from the foreground to the background. < / P > < p > finally, zoom, eight iPhones have at least five times the digital zoom, while the 11 pro and pro Max and 12 Pro zoom up to ten times. The 12 Pro Max goes a step further, with a 12x digital zoom. Perhaps the most impressive new feature of the iPhone 12 series is the ability to record in real time in Dolby vision. This classification technique is usually used in post production movies, but the A14 chip can compress the numbers for processing when shooting video. Obviously, even professional movie cameras can’t do this – let alone other mobile phones. < / P > < p > all eight iPhones survive falling into the pool or in the bathtub. The iPhone se has an IP67 waterproof rating and Apple says it can work for 30 minutes in 1 meter of water. For the iPhone 11 series, the IP68 level can dive to two meters. < / P > < p > on the iPhone 12 series, Apple claims to be able to dive to six meters (20 feet). Of course, we don’t recommend testing the new iPhone in case it happens unexpectedly. < / P > < p > no matter which one you choose, please make sure to purchase according to the demand. Apple does not support microSD card extension and cannot provide later extension support. < / P > < p > all eight iPhones support fast charging, but it’s important to note that apple is the only company that requires users to purchase a quick charge separately. The 11 pro and pro Max come with the required 18 w adapter and usb-c-lightning cable, while the iPhone 12 series has only cables and no charging head. < / P > < p > all eight iPhones support wireless charging, using Apple’s charger or the industry’s Qi standard charger, but users still need to purchase them independently. < / P > < p > in the iPhone 12 series, Apple has also reintroduced the new MagSafe wireless charger, which supports 15W fast charging. < / P > < p > one of the main selling points of the iPhone 12 series is its ability to connect to 5g, a new type of cellular network being promoted worldwide. They should allow Internet speed to grow faster than existing 4gs. Global Tech
